12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Middle of the road head retention, the ale shows a clear deeply brown hued liquid.

Smell: Mild roasted notes that throw hints of coffee around, mild sweetness and a twang of hops as well.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Moderate body, more creamy than smooth in the mouth. Obvious coffee flavours throughout with traces of chocolate in the finish. Light on the hops and the roasted flavours are mostly tepid.

Notes: One breweries stout could be another breweries brown ale … the lightest oatmeal stout I have ever run into. A good drinking ale but there is nothing special that it brings to the table.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Big light brown head slowly settles into a decent lacing above a clear burnt reddish brown colored beer.

Lightly sweet dark roasted caramel malts aroma overwhelms anything that may be trying to showcase itself.

Roasted caramel malts, light chocolate laden with a light sweetness compliments each other in the taste of this stout.

A lightly burnt and dry aftertaste that brings with it a bit of the malt tastes of this medium bodied beer.

Decent enough stuff, I do believe I could drink a few of these.
